  1. Thanks for feedback, folks
  2. Does anyone know specifically who is opening for who on the 3 (think it's 3) show run with Trampled by Turtles? Wilcoworld, Trampled's site, and the Treasure Island site are kinda ....vague. Obviously I'm looking directly at the Treasure Island show in Welch, MN. I can't imagine living in a world where Wilco opens for TBT, but they are from Minnesota so ????
  3. Just adding to the headcount involving "Dark Star" ?!?!?!
  4. My friend's band (Jim Pullman Band) covers Jesus, Etc.
  5. Anybody know the specifics of Target's "Deluxe Edition"? Thought I heard something about access to live downloads (??????)
  6. I guess when I say the Vikings are taking a risk, what I really mean is they are risking that the arm/shoulder holds up. That seems to be the big question. ZenLunatic ... I wholeheartedly agree with you from the perspective that I as a fan appreciate loyalty. But I think the days of expecting it from an athlete are gone. And yes, Bulls/Wizards is not Packers/Vikings. Believe me, I hate the Queens with every fiber of my being. I'm just saying that Jordan playing with a team other than the Bulls is overall a bigger deal than Favre suiting up for someone other than the Pack.
  7. Loyalty, preserving his legacy, blah blah blah. Doesn't mean anything in sports any more. Perfect post, Speed Racer. Jordan played for the Wizards, but when we think of him, don't we really focus on his Bulls days? I'm both a Packer fanboy and a Favre fanboy. The season will be played and life will move on. Favre's legacy won't be tarnished. The biggest risk here is really for the Vikings. I also look at it this way ... if Jim McMahon can put on a Packer helmet, Favre can put on a Viking helmet even if it makes me throw up in my mouth a little.
  8. You're right. Mandy Moore is too good for him. She should come shack up with me.
  9. Wow. I forgot how that may have been the most offensive/funniest discussion ever at VC. Possibly the best thread ever. Now if we could just revive the debate over whether "Hell Is Chrome" is one song or two.
  10. I've always liked the Orpheum; I guess it's just a little too small now for Wilco (??)

    Midwest in July?

    From a purely selfish standpoint, Wilco as a band hasn't played Mpls/St. Paul since, what ..... October 2004? There was Tweedy solo in November '05, and a couple of Wilco shows in Minnesota since then, but I don't remember a single Wilco show in the Twin Cities since then.
  12. As a borderline Gomez fanboy, I have to admit to being very disappointed with this one. I have no problem with an artist/group going a little more mellow or poppier, but you still need some kind of melody you can latch on to or at least an identifiable hook. This disc is severely lacking in both departments.

  14. Indications are that night 2 was pretty sick .... kind of an odd-looking first set on paper, but check out the second set; JESUS CHRIST!!!! March 7th, 2009 Hampton Coliseum Hampton, VA I: Get Back on the Train, Runaway Jim, Brian and Robert, Split Open and Melt, Heavy Things, Punch You in the Eye, Gumbo, Reba, Mexican Cousin, It's Ice, Halley's Comet, Beauty of a Broken Heart, Guelah Papyrus, Lawn Boy, Run Like An Antelope II: Rock and Roll>Jam>Limb By Limb, Ghost> Piper, Birds of a Feather, Wolfman's Brother, Prince Caspian, Mike's Song>I Am Hydrogen>Weekapug Groove,
  15. Wow. Sounds like an actual remix/remaster, rather than those remasters that really only seem to make it louder. I was on the fence for a while, but I'm fully on board now. Legacy edition for me.
  16. Free download of "Airstream Driver" available at the official website. http://www.gomeztheband.com/ Catchy tune.
  17. This just in ..... Jay Bennett has not been a member of Wilco for almost 8 years. Can't wait for this dead horse to stop being beaten.
  18. It was actually a pretty solid show last night. Good Palin/Biden skit, I thought Anne Hathaway did a great job as host, but this bit slayed me ...... http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Live/vid...animals/727504/
  19. All points indicate this will be better than the "post-hiatus" era. Sounds like Trey finally has his shit together, and that the band is doing this on their own terms. There's been a lot of talk that there was some pressure put on them to return back in 03-04.
  20. There's definitely potential, but I think it has miles and miles to go before it could be mentioned in the same sentence as Dexter or Californication. Based on the first show, I'd keep watching Entourage before True Blood. But .... I'll give it a few weeks. Anna Paquin's Bayou accent? Pretty rough, but her friend (Tara ??) is worse.
  21. Coil encores = majestic beauty Makisupa opener is always a good sign. I was at these 2 shows as well, and your absolutely correct; the 8/11 was great but tends to get lost in the shuffle compared to the previous night
  22. I picked up the Walnut Creek DVD when it came out this past Tuesday. As a concert DVD it's nothing special, but the music ..... Jesus! First set is good, but the 2nd set is the stuff that made/makes Phish. The DWD>Mike's segue is awesome. There's one moment (I'm blanking on the song right now) where Page and Trey hook up perfectly; Page shoots Trey a huge smile that is priceless. Absolutely ridiculous how much I like this set. This is one of the few '97 shows I hadn't heard. Actually considering plunking down the $ for the livephish download since I'm having trouble ripping the aud
  23. ..... made me question Vince Neil's gender.
